Kenges Rakishev input in #Shokanschool
It is the perfect place to learn: the school sports 45 classes, 25 groups of interests, recreation zone, concert hall and extensive library. The school’s architecture itself is designed to stimulate the logical thinking and intellectual growth of pupils.
Well equipped laboratories, Google office for the young programmers, culinary studio, pottery and chess academy, robot construction class and own theatre with rotating scene are only a few of the facilities of the school. With that initial led pupils will be glad to recall the school for a lifetime.

During the pandemic, the Saby Foundation did a lot of work to combat the spread of the coronavirus. We offer you a video report on the work performed.
I would like to add that, unfortunately, Saby, like any other charitable organization, does not have any privileges in its activities, for example, exemptions from tax payments, discounts from customs duties or transport subsidies from the state. If we had such preferences, we are sure that our work would be even more effective and efficient. And the funds that we are forced to use for related expenses could be used for their intended purpose.
